Ok, here's a bit of a weakness in my understanding.  The uses of Namespace 
in peak.ini
all seem to involve using wildcard property names.   Taking for example the 
use of
config.Namespace('environ.*'), the nature of these property names is such 
if I try and iterate them using config.iterKeys() all I get back is the 
wildcard rule.
So if I made a section with a (not yet written) EntryPoint() rule looking 

* = EntryPoints(<some params here>)

how would I list all the egg boxes I had in various egg distributions?

Also why would it be better to look at using Namespace() than creating a new 
type of
loader (to be registered in "[peak.config.loaders]")?  Or is there a reason 
I need to do both?
